What is it about white hair? Mark of maturity, gathered wisdom? Life having lived in depth now aging toward its natural finish? Distinction?
Grandma? Encouragement for the young that they, too, can achieve?
Sacrifice? Selflessness? The lady who bakes great cookies? The man who can fix anything?
Yes, a topping well-earned, it is hoped. Yet, below the mane can remain the brilliant color of youthful vigor, exuberance, enthusiasm. Life is not over until the finish.
